Older Youth Opportunities – VIRTUAL Workshop: Thursday, December 10th at 7 p.m.

Building a 4-H career resume happens naturally through club, community, county, state, national, and sometimes, international 4-H experiences. Join me next Thursday, December 10th (via Zoom) to learn how to track the accomplishments of our 4-H members. Doing so each year allows youth to be recognized for their learning and leadership experiences. Additionally, when they reach the 4-H age of 14, they become eligible for state and national trips, statewide camps, and county/state awards and scholarships.

All parents, advisors, and youth are welcome to attend to learn more!
